One of the goals of the C-2 experiment [1,2] is to explore FRC sustainment and current drive from neutral beam injection. Studies of the relaxation and confinement of hot anisotropic ions created by the neutral beams are considered to be key elements of the experimental research program.

In any magnetic plasma confinement device, it is advantageous to limit hot-ion loss through charge-exchange with cold neutral gas by minimizing the gas density near the plasma.
